PGWI would like to thank our partner CETRA Language Solutions for their support for the Cameroon Project! They have raised over $6,000 to provide a community in Cameroon with a source of clean water, and to educate and empower the people of the community to successfully maintain their water system. PGWI partnering with Meta Quality of Life Foundation (MQLIF)- Cameroon Partner, and Penn Engineers without Borders (PennEWB) are working on a phased plan for concentrating these efforts and providing additional training in the Bome Valley where the existing water system is to be rehabilitated and expanded.
